An Environment Capstone Experience provides students the opportunity to expand their knowledge and develop skills through an internship or independent research project. Students work within their interests to examine economic, political, technical, cultural, social, and/or ecological implications that define environmental issues and consider potential solutions. Past internships have included work with public agencies, private companies, and nonprofit organizations while independent research projects have included work on such topics as public lands issues/agreements, global climate change impacts, water quality impacts on biodiversity, solid waste issues, community ecology of invertebrates, water issues, invasive species, wetland loss, and alternative transportation.
